Ubisoft Philippines is finally official! And their presence here in the country means new job hiring opportunities for local Filipino talents especially for aspiring video game artists, designers, and programmers.
Originally based in France, Ubisoft is one of today’s most popular game developers and publishers following the huge successes of video games like Assasin’s Creed, Far Cry, Ghost Recon, Prince of Persia, Just Dance, and many more.
Now, Ubisoft Philippines is all set to open their very first game production studio in the country on the second quarter of 2016 which is touted to be located inside the De La Salle University campus at Sta. Rosa, Laguna. It’s the first foreign gaming studio here in the Philippines and Ubisoft’s second studio in Southeast Asia following Singapore.
Interestingly, the Ubisoft-DLSU partnership brings forth a new four-year game development program as well as a one-year orientation course for those who graduated from other fields but are interested in entering the game development industry
Leading as the studio manager for Ubisoft Philippines is Mr. Chip Go – a Ubisoft executive and veteran of Ubisoft Singapore. “I am very excited to have the opportunity to come back to my country of origin to kick start a brand new studio for Ubisoft,” Go said. “Every day, Filipinos leave the country in search of opportunities elsewhere. I was one of those people eight years ago, and now I’m very happy to come back and bring my own experience in AAA game development. I know that this experience, as well as Ubisoft’s 30 years of industry experience, is going to spark great things, and is a huge opportunity for the Philippines.”
